President Barack Obama will make his first trip to Reno since becoming president.

White House spokesman Adam Abrams on Friday confirmed Obama will visit Reno sometime in April, but didn’t immediately release any other details.

The president will travel to Reno and San Francisco to discuss his plans to strengthen the economy.

It will be Obama’s first trip to Reno since he made several campaign stops before he was elected president.

Nevada has been a key battleground state in recent presidential elections with Democratic and Republican candidates making visits. Both parties in the state boast early spots in the presidential nominating process.
